About 3,000 of these strollers were sold in the US and one in Canada between December 2014 and July 2016. All of the Chinese-manufactured models are folding single-occupant strollers in various colors including black, teal and navy.
Consumers should stop using the strollers immediately and contact Mamas & Papas for a free repair, the commission said.
